73  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / A Few Questions About Jam. on: November 25, 2008 10:32:48 PM

So, i wish to make some jam for christmas.

now, i have made jam before... only it was when i worked in a factory, so i had a specific recipe  to work from and was making about 400kg of the stuff at a time. As you can imagine, this did not give me much of an idea how to make a nice 2 - 5 kg batch at home!

so here are my questions, i would appreciate any help anyone can give me.

Firstly, as a general rule, how much sugar does one use per kg of fruit/berries? is it different for citrus fruit (ie marmalade)?

Second, does anyone use pectin in their home-made jam? if so, how much?

and last, how long does it generally keep in a sealed jar?

foot scrub is a good idea, and baby food jars would be perfect for that! they'd be an awesome size jar for heaps of christmas things...

I've just moved into a house with heaps of fruit trees, so now i'm thinking of doing some jams and marmalaids (spelling?) baby food jars would be good for that too *tries to think of friends with babies*

rest a big interesting bit of driftwood on it maybe? (i'm just thinking of driftwood cuz i saw it on the title of another thread, but it could work) or yeah, hang a big mirror or a painting above it without actually putting anything on the mantle.... oooor....  a plant or a vase, or a grouping of say three vases of differant sizes and shapes but similar colour....

i would probably use contact paper on the inside, cut out a big cross shape so the area in the middle is the size of the base of the box, and so the "arms" are the size of the sides of the box, do the fabric on the outside first with a little over-lap over the lip of the box, then contact the inside so that it overlaps the fabric coming over the top for a nice neat finish.

hope that made sense.

we applied for this place twice, the guy lives on the other side of the country, the only reason he said yes the second time is that it's been vacant for nearly 6 months, and noone else had looked at it. He's agreed on the condition that after 6 months, he flys over and personally inspects the place to make sure it's in mint condition, at which point he will decided whether or not to evict us.

Apparently, if you own a dog, you're some sort of filthy vandalising delinquint.
